[Tracy, Uriah]:

REFLECTIONS ON MONROE'S VIEW, OF THE CONDUCT OF THE EXECUTIVE, AS PUBLISHED IN THE GAZETTE OF THE UNITED STATES, UNDER THE SIGNATURE OF SCIPIO, IN WHICH THE COMMERCIAL WARFARE OF FRANCE IS TRACED TO THE FRENCH FACTION IN THIS COUNTRY, AS ITS SOURCE, AND THE MOTIVES OF OPPOSITION, &C.

[Philadelphia: 1798] 88pp, partly untrimmed, disbound. Scattered foxing, institutional rubberstamp in blank margin at head of title page. Good+. Howes calls the 1798 Boston printing, with a slightly different title, the first edition. It has sometimes been attributed to Alexander Hamilton. Tracy was a Connecticut Federalist, outraged by the conduct of James Monroe, Washington's ambassador to France, who sought to undermine the Jay Treaty with England and argued that deteriorating American-French relations were caused by American, not French, conduct. Tracy's Reflections "was an able, cynical, partisan criticism that had force as a campaign document." DAB. Howes T326. Gaines 98-56. Evans 34675. XVIII DAB 624.
